The highly sought after exhibition by Yayoi Kusama – Life is the Heart of a Rainbow is in Singapore at National Gallery Singapore!

Being typical Singaporean, I decided to ask my friends along to view the exhibition together! We went on a Sunday’s morning around 10 a.m. and discovered that there is a large crowd queuing for the purchase of tickets. Rumour has it that being local, we are able to view for FREE, hence we decided not to purchase the tickets online prior to our visit. We were so wrong! It is Free for children 6 years and under, local and locally-based students and teachers, persons with disabilities and one caregiver. Hence, my friends and I had to join the long queue to purchase the tickets at $15 (perks of being locals :)) while my another friend who is a Gallery Insider is able to view the exhibition without tickets and has prior queue privileges!

I like how reflective Yayoi Kusama is in every piece of her Art work. To me, every repetition dots represent a monotone activity that reflected so well in our fast pace society. Are we really able to freely express ourselves then? Through the repetition dots, it formed to different pieces of Art work which showed that every monotonous action you do can produce different results. Either you persevere on to do what you have set out to do, or you change your mind and create your own path where people have not take the trails on.

So, head on to National Gallery Singapore before 3 September 2017 to have a different perspective how you view Yayoi Kusama’s art work from others who are there for their OOTD shots. Take the time to appreciate Arts as Arts! Sometimes, you just need to change your posture and position of how you view certain thing or perspective, you might be in for a surprise!
